    Before you do anything, consult wwith an Immigration attorney. Immigration law is a very detailed niche and there may be ways to handle your case that will not affect your filing for citizenship.

    Yes. The time since the last Order was issued as to child support may play a role, but if there has been a significant and substantial change, then you should be okay. Also, look to see what the difference would be between what the currently ordered child support and what your child support would be today. If it is greater than $100.00 different (monthly) or 20% different, that will also help your case. You can go through the Office of the Attorney General, but it will take longer than going...

    I am not sure what you consider to be "guilt by association"? If it is the "law of the parties" where you were an active participant, then I agree with the other answers posted. If you were just present and, perhaps, did not know about the theft before or during the theft, there may be room to argue. Recently, I had this type of situation. In the end, the active participant received a Pre-Trial Diversion and the charges agaainst the unknowing party were dissmissed. I also note that you may be a...

    Yes. While some Courts still view the mother as the better primary care parent, times and attitudes are changing - especially in the larger cities. If you can document what you said here, I think you have a good, fighting chance. Find a good lawyer in Dallas. Good luck!

    If your probation was terminated on May 12, 2010, then you probably have little to worry about. However, it is a little concerning that you are unsure if you were actually taken off of probation. You should call your PO. Another option is go to the court clerk's office and look in the file. Either way, you need to take action to make sure that you are actually off of probation.

    You may be able to terminate your probation early, but a lot of that depends on the Judge and especially on your probation officer. If your PO wrote negative things about you, then you will have an uphill battle. Also, the fact that this is an aggravated offense is working against you. One question that you need to ask is 'Will I still be denied jobs/pharmacy exam even if I terminaate early?". I doubt that you are being denied these jobs just because you are on probation - but are being denied...

    That is a very long time to be waiting. I would personally go to the District Attorney's office (or County Attorney where applicable) and speak to someone directly. I agree that a Statute of Limitations issue may be present depending on the charge. A statute of limitation basically barrs any further action to be taken after a certain amount of time.

    I believe that there may be too much missing information to really answer this question. In general, the Judge has complete discretion as to sentencing your husband within the range of punishment. I cannot tell you the range of punishment because I do not know the level of the charge. The Judge could also extend his probation or put in additional conditions as to his probation. The only issue at a hearing will be whether or not there was a violation of his probation. As every Judge is different,...

    You need to contact an Arkansas attorney to review the case file and make a determination as to whether an expunction would be applicable.
